Ca 2 binding to synaptotagmin : how many Ca 2 ions bind to the tip of a C 2-domain ?
TLDR
An electrostatic switch model for C2-domain function whereby the β-sheets of the domain provide a fixed scaffold for the Ca2 binding loops, and whereby interactions with target molecules are triggered by a Ca2 -induced switch in electrostatic potential is supported.
Bipartite Ca2+-Binding Motif in C2 Domains of Synaptotagmin and Protein Kinase C
TLDR
Analysis of calcium binding to C2 domains of synaptotagmin I and protein kinase C-β by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy revealed a bipartite calcium-binding motif that involves the coordination of two calcium ions by five aspartate residues located on two separate loops.
The Top Loops of the C2 Domains from Synaptotagmin and Phospholipase A2 Control Functional Specificity*
TLDR
It is shown that grafting the short Ca2+-binding loops from the tip of the cPLA2C2 domain onto the top of thesynaptotagmin 1 C2A domain confers onto the synaptosolic phospholipase A2(cPLA2) C2 domain theospholipid binding specificity of the C2domain, indicating that the functional specificity of C2 domains is determined by their short top loops.
Synaptotagmin-1 membrane binding is driven by the C2B domain and assisted cooperatively by the C2A domain
TLDR
By correlating energetics data with the molecular rearrangements measured during confinement, it is found that both C2 domains cooperate in membrane binding, with the C2B domain functioning as the main energetic driver, and the C1 domain acting as a facilitator.
Structure of the C2A domain of rabphilin-3A.
TLDR
The crystal structure of the Ca2+-free C2A domain of Rabphilin-3A, a neuronal protein containing a C2-domain tandem, has been solved by molecular replacement and refined to 1.92 A resolution.
C2-Domain Proteins Involved in Membrane Traffic
TLDR
Extensive analysis of the structure and Ca2+-binding properties of the two synaptotagmin 1 C2-domains has helped design genetic experiments that have strongly supported the notion that this protein acts as the majorCa2+ sensor in neurotransmitter release.

TLDR
Findings confirm that the unc-13 gene product has binding sites similar to those of protein kinase C and may be a component of an alternative transduction pathway of the diacylglycerol signal to a different effector function in the nervous system.

Inhibition of neurotransmitter release by C2-domain peptides implicates synaptotagmin in exocytosis
TLDR
The data are consistent with these peptides competitively blocking release after synaptic vesicle docking and indicate that Ca2+ probably initiates neurotransmitter release by regulating the interaction of synaptotagmin with an acceptor protein.
